Staff Openings

In prior years, the Fulbright Academy had additional paid staff to manage projects and assist members. Some worked on projects funded by grants, and some were hired on a commission-based salary. 

A draft position description for Managing Director of Alumni Summits has been posted. We are currently seeking contributions from alumni to provide seed funding so that this position can be filled.

If you are interested in this position or other work opportunities at the Fulbright Academy, please contact a member of the board of directors.



Fulbright Academy Interns

The Fulbright Academy regularly has recent Fulbright grantees as interns, based either at the Academy's office or off-site: living in the United States or in other countries. The intern program was started in 2006 by a donation from Booz Allen Hamilton.  FAST is seeking individuals or corporations to sponsor future interns (about $600/month).

For example, Rafael was a Peruvian lawyer who wanted to get out of law and so came to Boston University in 2005 on a Fulbright to study communication. In 2005l, he announced on a Fulbright Listserv that he was looking for a video project. We replied – you can do a DVD for FAST. In March 2006, we flew him to Berlin for our conference, where he collected 7+ hours of footage. He edited that footage to make a DVD/documentary about the conference and the Academy. This DVD is being used to promote FAST and to solicit donors/sponsors for future conferences and programs. (Click here to see the videos.)

Zeeshan is a Pakistani who came to Florida Institute of Technology in 2005 on a Fulbright to study information technology & human behavior. Shortly after his arrival, he announced on the Fulbright Listserv that he wanted to publish a collection of essays written by Fulbrighters about their experiences in the US.  Several collections of essays are now available on Amazon.com, and most of them have been are supported by FAST through our Fulbright stories project.  In 2008, Zeeshan came to Maine for two weeks to assist with computer/IT issues.
